There are an estimated 61 million Americans who are uninsured or considered “under-insured”, and this number is likely to soar in coming years. Health care costs in the USA continue to rise beyond the reach of the average American – mainly due to astronomical malpractice premiums that doctors here in the U.S. are forced to carry, high staff wages etc, and there is no end in sight.
Overseas care represents an affordable alternative worthy of your consideration. Click here for an example of the incredible savings you can achieve overseas.
Tens of thousands of Americans are traveling abroad to places like Brazil, Thailand, India, Singapore, etc to undergo surgery and medical procedures that are a fraction of the cost here in the United States. Some of these procedures are often available in developing countries years before the FDA approval in the U.S. (e.g. hip resurfacing, an alternative to hip replacement; shots for macular degeneration; non-invasive heart surgery, etc).
These overseas doctors are often American or British trained and the hospitals they operate in are internationally accredited – clean, well equipped, even luxurious by American standards. An increasing number of these hospitals have entire wings set up just to cater to international patients.
Thanks to lower labor, lower operating costs and lower malpractice premiums that overseas doctors have to carry – Americans seeking treatment overseas can expect to realize savings (including the cost of the medical procedure, airfare and accommodation) of anywhere from 30% to 85% on comparable medical procedures here in the United States!
Going abroad might be the only way to afford surgery or dental work for:
- those without health insurance
- those whose policies do not cover the procedures they need
- those with health insurance but who cannot afford the deductibles and co-payments
- those who do not want to jeopardize their financial situation
The low cost of treatment overseas often allows an American patient the opportunity to receive medical care in an exotic location, enjoy a vacation, recover in a four or five-star resort, and return home having spent considerably less than what the procedure would have cost in the United States.
